You don’t normally see posts about hip-hop here, but when you do, they’re usually ones of great proportion. Here we have the “Rebirth of Detroit” project, featuring artists of Detroit rapping/doing their thing over the work of the late great Detroit beat-wizard J-Dilla.
I am really excited about this project, since I was born in Detroit and feel a strong allegiance towards the great city. Sure, it is a largely negative light right now, but in my opinion, Detroit can make a turnaround. Soon.
Below, watch a video of one of the songs on Rebirth, featuring Danny Brown, one of Detroit’s most prominent rappers. The song is dope, Danny Brown’s aggressive style is matched perfectly with the beat.
Have a good day!
